Why Some Small Businesses Succeed Where Others Fail

Hello and welcome to my blog on all topics related to business. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. I am one of a few members of my family who have not yet started a business, though that doesn't mean I won't try in the future. My name is Stacy Pascal and I have spent years interrogating family members in order to find out everything I can about what it is like to run a business. I have decided to start blogging about business topics just for fun and so that I can hopefully help someone start and run a successful business.

Tripled Your Work By Having Triplets? You Should Hire Domestic Staffing

If you have just had triplets the babies alone are going to take up much of your time. Because it is important that you keep your home in order, you need to have some help. One way to do this is to hire domestic staffing. Below is more information about this so you can enjoy your bundles of joy.

The Type of Help You Need

Before you get started, consider the type of help you need. For example, you may want a nanny that is also a housekeeper or you may want someone to only take care of the home. You may need a gardener, a chauffeur and even a chef to cook your dinners. If you have a large home and will be receiving a lot of visitors, consider hiring a butler. What you choose does depend on how much money you would like to spend.

You could also hire a staff to be at your home part-time, such as half days or a few days per week. Because you have triplets you may staff someone full-time, at least in the beginning.

What to Consider

The first thing to consider is ensure the staff that you hire is reliable, honest, and trustworthy. If you hire a staff on your own, check references and do background checks. It may be a better choice to hire who you need from a domestic staffing agency. The agency will have already done all the work for you to determine that their employees have the experience they need to do a good job for you.

Determine what the average wage is for domestic staff so you can offer this much. Offering a wage that is much lower will result in you having a high turnover. You do not want to get used to someone and then have to start all over again with a new person.

Sit down and write out what you expect of the staff that you hire and show this to them. The job description should be very detailed. For example, if you just say cleaning you may also mean deep cleaning but the staff may think you meant just average cleaning each day.

When you find someone that you like, let them work for you for a trial period. Do not follow them around all day but observe their work. Watch how the person interacts with the family. If they will be helping you take care of the babies, ask them to change a diaper or feed one of them. This can show you if they are comfortable around babies or not.

If you use a domestic service staffing agency like Coastal Estate Staffing, they can give you many more tips on hiring someone to help you.
